Abstract

IN the course of an investigation of the structure of glucuronic acid, we have obtained results which clearly prove that this acid, like the related hexose d-glucose, possesses a pyranoid structure. Our starting material was bornyl-d-glucuronide (borneol glucuronic acid) isolated as the zinc salt from the urine of humans and dogs receiving small doses of borneol.
